Musician Provoice and DJ Wayne have joined hands in the fight against diabetes via Hand to Hand Initiative.
The initiative mainly focuses on donation of food stuffs and medicine for the diabetic.
On 14th May, the duo headed to Kamuzu Central Hospital, where they honoured their aims.
Speaking in an interview with Malawi24 on Wednesday, Provoice said they feel obliged to render a helping hand using their influence as artists.
“In as much as we have ugly experiences with diabetes as it has robbed us our loved ones, we felt the need to reach out to the diabetic using our influence as artists,” Provoice said.
Provoice whose real name is Lameck Mwenebanda, added that the story did not end at Kamuzu Central as they are planning to visit more hospitals in the country.
The duo are therefore urging those who are willing to join the fight, to contribute towards the initiative in any form. This, is in consideration of the reality that drugs are quite expensive.
Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases whereby a person has high blood sugar due to an inability to produce, or inability to metabolize, sufficient quantities of the hormone insulin.
